Our Lady of Conquering Love

A reflection from Sr. Anne Marie Walsh, SOLT

Our Lady of Conquering Love

The following poem yields some simple clues about the real nature of Mary.

Into cobwebbed haunts
And festering darkness
Slips a Lady of Light
In search of her children.

In many respects Mary is not known as she should be, often because popular devotion tends to trap her within the confines of pietistic practices and images that don't always lead to a real relationship.  Praying the rosary, asking Mary's intercession, and honoring her in different ways has so much more efficacy and meaning when we know and understand her as she really is.

In speaking to groups of women from different countries and different backgrounds, there is always a weak response to the question:  "How many of you would say you have a close relationship with our Blessed Mother?"  In response to the follow-up question:  "How many of you find it hard to relate to Our Lady?" the majority of hands go up.  She lived 2000 years …

The Miracles of God and Bishop Tony Palmer

Hello friends,
Below I am posting a talk by Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer. He is speaking at a conference for evangelical leaders and this particular talk was featured within Kenneth Copeland's worship service.

This talk blew my mind and I feel that it is deeply prophetic. Bishop Tony is talking about the unification of the Protestant and Catholic church through the power of the Holy Spirit and the truth he speaks is astounding. Bishop Tony knew Pope Francis before he was elected to the pontificate, and Pope Francis recorded a special message for the evangelical leaders that Bishop Tony plays at the end of this talk. It is powerful. The talk is 40 minutes of your life well spent.

God is doing something great in the Church right now. Something amazing. Will we be open? What you will see in this video may be a bit outside your comfort zone but I ask that you pray to the Holy Spirit and listen to the message. What is God saying to you?

Bishop Tony begins to speak at 4:30 of this video …
